New Magmasoft Casting Simulation capability

Member News


Alucast has invested in Magmasoft casting simulation software so that we can stay at the forefront of progressive technology that can be used to realize quality castings at competitive prices thus further gaining additional customer confidence by the systematic reduction and elimination of costly casting trials and tooling modifications prior to production. Less scrap, reduced rework and fewer customer rejects. 


Desirable die casting processes are characterized by casting conditions that avoid gas inclusions, porosity and cold laps but at the same time provide optimal filling characteristics and short cycle times. Economic production aims at an optimum die temperature control, a long die life, small cycle material amounts and perfectly set machine parameters. Using casting process simulation, die casters gain a deeper understanding of their processes and can adjust die design, casting parameters and runner design in such ways that castings of optimal quality can be produced in economical and robust manufacturing processes.
